Disk is being read by player but gets stuck and we are unable to eject disk from player - player is freezing and will not respond to remote or player buttons
1) Turn it upside down.
2) Turn it on
3) Press eject button & use screwdriver with special slot

You'll need a security screwdriver to undo the silly screws that keep the chassis cover on. (Not a phillips screwdriver, ironically!) You've unplugged it from the mains, of course.
Use the same screwdriver to unscrew and remove the DVD disk unit. (The tray has a decorative blac strip clipped to it which you'll need to remove in order to comletely get the unit and tray out opf the chassis.
Now carefully prize off the top unit and look for the little motor and drive belt that operates the disk tray opening ghears. You'll probably find this has broken. I think when I replaced mine it was a 25mm drive belt with a square cross-section that I needed. It cost me about 50p on ebay to get the right one and fix the tray.
Hope this helps

I had same problem with my Philips Dvd3460h, the only way i could get disk out was to take the top off the unit, and on the front left hand side (on the actual disk draw) there is a white disk, i gently lifted that white disk and kept it raised while pressing open/close button again, to eject disk and draw opened allowing me to take the out...
This has happened a few times now, the odd disk wont play or eject and each time have had to do the same thing to get the disk out..
hope this helps
